Jason Mattesonwrote a review of The North Face Paramount Valley Convertible Pant - Men's on September 17, 2012
These are great pants. They dry quickly and are very durable. I do a lot of high altitude hiking and they have not let me down yet. My only complaints are the shorts inseam which is really short (8"). The short hem hangs about 2 inches above my knee (I prefer short hems to sit at or slightly below the knee, but this is more a preference and not really a design flaw). The front /side cargo pockets hit the front of the thigh a little tight on me and can be uncomfortable with some items, but I have fairly large legs. The regular length is also a little shorter than most regulars. After several washes, they have shrunk about 1-1.5 inches. Overall, I am impressed with these pants and would buy another pair. Looks like the TNF Paramount Peak pants have a longer short inseam, longer overall inseam, and repositioned pockets more to the side of the leg.
